How to Make Keto Marble Cake?

how to make keto marble cake
  1. Start by mixing all the wet ingredients into a large bowl. Add the eggs, heavy cream, melted butter (or coconut oil if paleo), vanilla extract, and stir for 1-2 minutes until frothy. You can use a whisk or an electric mixer.
  2. In a different bowl, combine the dry ingredients: almond flour, coconut flour, sweetener, baking soda (or baking powder). You can sift these ingredients to remove the lumps that the almond flour may have.
  3. Combine two bowls contents until a smooth batter forms.
  4. Transfer 1/3 of the vanilla batter to a medium bowl and add the cocoa powder and heavy cream to get the chocolate layer.
  5. To assemble the cake and get those beautiful layers, then alternate with chocolate cake batter until you have no batter left. It’s easier than it seems, and you can watch the short video I made from you to see exactly how to make it.
  6. Bake the keto marble cake in the preheated oven for about 40-50 minutes.

Usually, chocolate is forbidden on keto because it’s filled with sugar and flavors. If you choose a sugar dark chocolate that’s sweetened with an approved keto sweetener you can eat chocolate on keto, but with a measure.

Ingredients


Instructions


  • Preheat the oven to 350°F/180°C and line a 9X5 inch loaf pan with parchment paper. Set aside.
  • In a big bowl, combine the dry ingredients: almond flour, coconut flour, sweetener, baking soda (or baking powder). You can sift these ingredients to remove the lumps that the almond flour may have.
  • In a mixing bowl, add the eggs and whisk well. Add the heavy cream, melted butter (not boiling), and vanilla extract.
  • Combine the dry and wet ingredients until a smooth batter forms, and there are no visible lumps. If your batter it’s too hard, add a splash of unsweetened almond milk and stir again.
  • Transfer 1/3 of the vanilla cake batter to another bowl. Add the cocoa powder and heavy cream. Stir well, until you get a smooth chocolate cake batter.
  • To assemble the marble cake: Start by pouring about 3 tablespoons of vanilla batter on the bottom of the pan, then alternate with chocolate cake batter until you have no batter left. Use a skewer or a knife and swirl the top of the butter to create a beautiful effect. Watch the step by step video to see exactly how to do it.
  • Transfer the batter to the prepared loaf pan and bake in the preheated oven for 40-50 minutes or until a skewer inserted in the middle comes out clean.
  • Let the marble cool for about 10 minutes in the pan and then transfer to a cooling rack.
  • Slice and enjoy it warm with a cup of bulletproof coffee!

  1. I can’t find meduim eggs due to the lockdown. I have large eggs, do I use the same amount of eggs or less? Please advice, I really want to make this cake.

    1. Start using 4 large eggs. If your batter turns out too thick add another egg until you get the consistency as shown in the video. Hope this helps. Let me know how it turned out.

  2. Thank you for all the wonderful recipes !
    I can’t tolerate Erythritol, it really bothers my stomach
    Any suggestions for a keto approved sweetener?
    Thank you
